the great wait

i thought on this blustery monday, i would have it. at least have the baby steps toward it. that inching toward the light i'd so hoped for. but the meeting for my speech easy has been delayed until november 11. a private matter in the speech pathologist's life that prevented her from meeting last week.

so this monday looks like any other. the frost on the ground outside is slowly melting as the sun creeps up. i've got my coffee cup and my Bible beside me, fuel for the day. pablo is asleep on the bed in the next room, curled up against the chill of seven a.m.

and i will wait. as sarah waited for children and job waited for grace. because it will come. not on my watch or agenda. but nonetheless, it will happen. just as the tree outside my window turned ruby at just the precise time in october. a scheme not my own, but His. and with prayer, i just might grab a glimmer of that illusive patience that has always slipped right past my touch. it's a lesson, this waiting. but one worth learning.

Patience is not something I'm good at, it's a lesson that God is continually teaching me.

.... did you say snow?

OH the difficulty of having patience! We just need to remember to call on God and wait for Him. He has never left us, but perhaps what we are asking for, is not of today. God knows the timing and plans for our lives.

Patience is not one of my virtues, but God has been helping me to learn that things don't happen on my time, but on His.

Isn't it great to have a God to put your faith in? Faith in God includes faith in his timing. [one of my favorite quotes, thought I would share. :)]

This is absolutely beautiful! Sometimes when we wait that is when we are able to see God's hand working and not ours. Waiting on God is always the best choice when we don't know what else to do.

The picture is so beautiful!
